As Episcopalians, our identity is rooted first and foremost in the birth, ministry, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, into who's life we are baptized. Our Christian way is shaped by Scripture, Tradition, and Reason. Our tradition is has its origins in the history, community, and liturgy of the Church of England. Those historic ties and current relationships shape our particular expression of our Christian faith. In the Episcopal Church, history, connection, and relationship matter deeply.

Leadership is a gift from God and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of gender, sexual identity, or orientation.
